Bringing people forward to work

With continued uncertainty surrounding how and where we work, we know that it is more critical than ever to:

  • Make decisions that ensure employee safety, align with corporate values and protect reputation
  • Enable leaders, managers and employees to navigate a hybrid work environment with a minimum of disruption
  • Communicate to employees in ways that drive understanding and commitment

United Minds’ approach to Workforce Re-entry leverages expertise from a range of disciplines to guide decision-making. From support in assessing current needs to an immersive (Re)boot Camp experience for your people, United Minds’ team of change management experts and creatives is poised to help you plan a re-entry experience that transitions employees to a more hopeful future.

Our Approach


Current State Assessment

  • Develop an internal and external fact base to inform workforce re-entry strategy


Workforce Re-entry Strategy

  • Determine a re-entry strategy that safely brings employees back to the workplace in the right sequence, taking into account government guidance, epidemiology and business needs


(Re)Boot Camp Immersion

  • Prepare leaders, managers and employees for workforce re-entry and changes to ways of working
  • As needed, provide support on a range of additional execution areas:
    • Safety and wellbeing
    • Inclusion
    • Workplace design
    • Employee activism and response planning


Reflect and Reinvent

  • Identify learnings from the process and identify any gaps or misalignments in capabilities, employee experience and/or workplace culture
  • Develop a reinvention implementation plan

In partnership with your Pandemic Task Force (HR, Communications, Facilities, IT, Legal etc.)

Workforce Re-entry Perspectives

According to a recent report from KRC Research, only 6% of employees will feel safe returning to work when their employer says it’s safe.

United Minds helps build trust and transparency by bringing together expertise from a range of disciplines to guide decision-making, such as epidemiology and public health, public affairs, corporate reputation, employee safety and wellbeing – among others.

As part of our approach, we leverage science-based communications strategy from Element Scientific Communications, corporate reputation expertise from Weber Shandwick and public affairs counsel from Powell Tate to guide strategic internal, external and crisis communications support.
